4:00 pm
today. >> hewlett-packard on its way out next week. [closing bell ringing] david: look at goldman sachs. one share of the stock will be beyond my limit. okay, the bells are ringing on wall street. another triple-digit day. this rally continues, folks. i would call it essentially a relief rally from what we've seen based on what's happening overseas. not only syria,. decrease in tensions over there but better news from china. all that helping the market today. all the indices doing extremely well. nobody managed to go ahead of the 1% mark with the russell 2000, nasdaq. still a very good day on wall street. all of them to the plus side. let's get right to today's action. we have larry shover. he is at the cme. "after the bell" starts right now. david: okay, now we'll introduce our guests. we see 12-point duane on the
4:01 pm
dow. the dow had three -- 128-point gain on the dow. they had three new entries. randy warren, warren financial services. chief investment officer. he says the best way to play the markets is in equities. he has three top picks. larry shover, our standard-bearer from the cme. larry, i want to start with you. i call it a relief rally because of news on syria. we got this as breaking news. john kerry will meet on thursday with russia's foreign minister. talk about the plan that started accidentally came out of the mouth of john kerry. it turned into reality as russians and syrians turned it over. looks like it might become policy. is all this is relief rally what we're seeing in the market? >> another way to put it. david: it is painful rally. this started at end of august. people were downsizing exposure to the stock market with a mine filed of things around us,
4:02 pm
syria, tapering, what have you. people were very worried and as things go we see a tremendous impressive rally, eight of the nine last days, six days in a row up. people are covering. they're chasing. they're still very, very negative. so for me the page rate continues to be on the upside because people have not bought into this yet, at least traders behind me. david: randy, you are an apple stock fan. you recommend it. you've got it in your portfolio. what happened today with the stock? why was it investors were totally unempressed by the new products? >> i think unlike the situation where, with the federal reserve taper, i think in the apple case they did sell the news. they bought the rumor and pushed the stock up ahead of the announcement and then sold the news when there wasn't anything unexpected in the announcement. david: but you say buy the news, right? are you still buying on this news? >> yeah. i think today's, today's dip is an opportunity for you to get
4:03 pm
into a very, very inexpensive stock. there is still a lot of innovation left inside of apple. lots of employees they're working hard every day to make that stock go up. they will be coming out with more exciting things. today's announcement was pretty good actually the -- david: why is that? >> biometrics included in the new phone are pretty exciting. david: i have to tell you. i'm a stockholder of apple. i've had apple for quite some time. i was disappointed with today's news. there wasn't already anything we didn't already know but why not sell in the short term? >> that makes sense but they're coming out, the new phone also not only biometrics but the ability to measure movement for exercise. that will be a really nice feature for people who take their phones with them when they go to exercise ore go to the gym or just want to keep track, you know, how many steps they take in a day. david: larry, i don't want to focus on the bad news, on a day
4:04 pm
with triple-digit gains on the dow. there was a lot of good news around. we saw a rise in interest rates again. for a couple days we had a slowdown in interest rates. they're picking back up again. it was 2.94, end of the day. >> right. david:ing closer to the 3% mark on 10-year-year-old. housing. 2.96 is where it ended by the way today. it has had an effect on housing. there has been a slum in housing deman and a lot he have people would say it is because of increased mortgage rates, right? >> i think so but let's look at the bigger picture. interest rates are so profoundly low. we heard bank of america, wells fargo might lay off employees because of lack of mortgage interest. in the scheme of things looking at history rates are really still low. rates are going up for the right reasons because of economic data around the world is crawling up a little better at a time. not to say if rates jump to 3.5 that will be good for the market but right here at 3%, what's the
4:05 pm
big deal? it will cut some people out of the market and that's a tragic situation. i still think we're in baby steps after big recovery in the housing market. okay. david: i was going to say some people tragic that a lot of savers are not able to get any kind of return on their capital because rates are artificially held so low so long by the fed. >> yeah. david: randy, that will change soon. when it does what happens to the market? >> the key point there that rates are going up for the right reason. the economy is improving. we'd all like it to improve faster. i would like to see a gdp print over 3% sometime the next six months. we might get there, we might not but what is going on in china is exciting. europe looks like it may be bottoming at this point f that economy is getting stronger, then housing will do okay. people will get jobs that don't have jobs now and they will be able to come into the market. david: by the way let's talk about a couple of your picks. i mentioned apple of course.
4:06 pm
visa, this is a new entry into the dow jones industrial average. we saw a bump today. is it too late to get in on visa, randy? >> no. visa had a nice run but what a fantastic company. they don't take a tremendous amount of credit rick. they don't loan the money. banks are behind them loaning money. they're taking a piece of every transaction that happens electronically. which, by the way, apple may be able to get into that business as well with the new biometrics. david: it may well. >> do transactions more easily on your phone. david: yeah, that fingerprint model might be followed. that will be interesting. by the way retailers getting hit bad. we had a lost bad news a couple weeks ago. retailers stocks went down. urban outfitters down 10%. you're going with a retailer, underarmor. why do you like them? >> underarmor is fantastic. they continue to innovate. they continue to come out with new products and they continue to expand their global footprint. they're trying to move out from just being a u.s. kind of centric company into more of a global company, moving into
4:07 pm
things like hotspurs, english premier league soccer. david: randy i have got to remind you, i got to remind you, it is such a fickle market. that is one reason why retail is so hard to get ahold of. why isn't underarmor part of that fickleness on the part of the consumer? >> yeah it is. if we were going into recession you wouldn't want to be in underarmor but we're not going into recession. the economy is getting better. so more and more people are able to afford, little luxury of an underarmor type of product. david: okay. well, on a day when the market is up 12points on the dow, keep it with a positive tone. clearly investors feel that way today. good to see you, randy thank you very much. randy warren. appreciate it. larry shover we'll check in with you in a couple minutes for the s&p futures close. thanks, gentleman. the wait is over. apple finally unveiling the new iphone line. will they be a game-changer in

4:12 pm
david: shares of five below hitting all-time highs today. nicole petallides on floor of new york stock exchange. nicole, we're talking about retailers doing badly. not so with five below, right? >> right. we saw urban outfitters get hit hard. but five below is another story, david. we're seeing this one, jumping as you noted to new highs. 48.99 was highest point. this is 17% to the upside for this discount retailer. they came out with numbers for fiscal second quarter profit more than tripled and sales jumped at the margins. margins strengthened. they easily surpassed wall street estimates and pennsylvania discount retailer, headquarters, did so well. you saw several analysts rushing to a play a little catch-up. deutch the bank, by the way,
4:13 pm
they are 48 bucks to $50. they have a buy rating. certainly a great performer and bucking the trend of some other retailers. jcpenney is down today too. david: good for five below. nicole petallides from the nyse. s&p futures will close in a couple minutes. let's head back to larry shover at cme and sandy smith in the newsroom with two minutes before it closes. sandy, talk about oil. it is down 2%. i'm wondering if it finally peaked. has all the news in the middle east settled enough oil will keep coming down? >> not a chance. this market is definitely focused on syria but oil is rising for among other reasons, raw fundamental reasons like tight global oil supply. when you get news out of china, japan, these kind of economies are blossoming and getting bigger and improving, strengthening, david, you're talking about the world consuming more oil. so we didn't just get the triple digit oil prices because of fears over a strike in syria. we got there because of title
4:14 pm
global supply and that's not going away anytime soon. what we're seeing right now, dave, just that fear premium coming out of the market. david: $2.25 drop in the price of oil in one day, larry shover is nothing to sneeze at. if that direction keeps going, we could get below $100, could we not? >> i don't think so. i think sandra is spot on. all we saw was the risk premium being taken away. let's remember, north atlantic basin production growth is enormous but being offset in a huge way by supply, i'm sorry, production that is very, very tight across the world especially in north america. so we have a glut of oil that can not be produced right now. so it will be a long while before we see $100 oil at least in my mind. david: we should get busy producing and get the pipelines going and get the fracking done. >> perfect world, david. >> yeah. perfect world. david: sandy, larry, great to talk to you both. thank you very much. apple rolling out the next
4:15 pm
generation of iphones, will the new hand-sets beat out rival devices from samsung and other companies? coming up we'll head to apple's head quarters in cupertino, california. liz claman out in silicon valley with details of her next big interview. liz what do you have coming up? >> we have precast, it is a video conversation site that enables people to learn, from hook up as far as video discussions are concerned with people of their same interests. it's a fascinating website showing huge growth potential, a lot of venture capitalists are very interested this one. the ceo joins us live coming right up. he founded stubhub. many of you used that, right? let's take a look when we come back and his brand new venture, spree cap.
4:16 pm
4:17 pm
4:18 pm
4:19 pm
♪ liz: what do you do, here's a good question, what do you do after selling a company you started, stubhub, one of the world's now largest ticketing marketplaces, sell it to ebay for more than $300 million? you dive right back in, create a new business. online social video platform of course. i'm speaking exclusively with the guy who did it, the ceo of spree cast. classic entrepreneur. silicon valley, type-a behavior, start one, sell it, start another. talk about spreecast. this is video conversation platform which is social media. what does it do and how does it work? >> sure.
4:20 pm
we have a live spreecast boeing on right here. these are four employees. thee in san francisco and four in new york. hi, guys. liz: everybody can wave. >> hopefully they will wave and say hi to us. we're about connecting people on the internet with face-to-face conversations. >> they're adding little comments right here and it goes through. it just cycles through. >> that's right. you can have four people on screen. thousands of people who attend and participate and those folks who are not on camera can use a text-based chat, share on social media. anybody can request to join on camera. it is all about interactive, face-to-face conversations. >> how is it different from some other things out there, like google has google hankout? >> so there are some similarities between spreecast and hangouts. there are really three key differences. the difference is audience interrter activity. in sprycast you can join multiple ways but on hankouts
4:21 pm
you is not possible you have to be a google plus user. spreecast you can use facebook credentials, twitter credentialals and use email address so much more open that hankout. liz: you have pretty cool partnerships here. the one that jumps to mind now for example, one direction. you had them come on spreecast and talk to fans and answer questions. that is incredible. how did you land that? >> we had at love celebrities on from one direction, to britney spears and reese witherspoon. it's a great tool for engaging with fans. same reason you see a lot of celebrities using facebook and twittory connect with fans. liz: that is one way. you're actually answering their questions. it faces natings and you recently signed up the usc basketball coach. >> we think sports is just a perfect, perfect vertical for spreecast. you have these rabid fans of a particular team. in this case, usc who may be displaced living around the country and around the world. you karn bring everybody
4:22 pm
together once a week or periodic basis to talk about the team. interact with coaches and players. we think it's a great way to really mobilize those fans. liz: you have raised 11 million in vc money. what is next for you? how do you make your money? >> we focused primarily building product both on web and mobile. we started to grow our user base. monetizaton is only something we recently thought about but we put in place a couple of key monetizaton components. one is video ads. you can run ads in the live spreecast. everything is reported so the ads are in the archive of spreecast. there are features you have to pay for. liz: you have ios and, is it more exciting on smartphones or tablets or laptops? >> we launched our mobile, four or five months ago back in april and we came out with a mobile browser experience for both ios and android as well as app for ios it has been a huge success for us.
4:23 pm
we've been excited about the growth there we're seeing more than 30% of our viewership is happening on mobile devices. liz: i think it is betwer a bigger screen. look at your pals. look, they're dancing around. [laughing] somebody needs a little, you know, lesson there but -- she is doing that. i know that. but i think what, what is better, the experience, when it is on somewhat bigger screen, correct? >> well, yeah. certainly in a desktop browser you will get a more full experience. in a mobile device there are some limitations and some things that you can't do. one of the things we'll introduce in the mobile experience soon is ability to join on camera. currently the mobile experience is view only. we're about to launch the ability to actually join from the mobile camera which is another big step forward for us. liz: who's next? if you got the usc coach, i'm thinking why not the coach of giants or cleveland browns, my personal favorite? >> i won't hold it against you that you're a browns fan. liz: that is so mean.
4:24 pm
i did not deserve this attack. go on. >> we are very, we think, as i said sports is a big opportunity for us. we're in conversations with a bunch of folks in sports world. liz: how about leaders? >> as i say we have big relationships with a lot of big media companies. folks like "the wall street journal" or mtv or espn or cnn are all using spreecast. they embed it in their o.w.n. sight. we have embedded player on the third party websites. they can engage the audience about sports, entertainment, news, politics and this is all happening on third party players on -- liz: what about leagues, national hockey league, national football league, i think there is opportunity here. >> you're right. i think it is opportunity to bring fans together, displaced fans and we're trying to talk to all those folks. liz: could you, eventually, facebook is so huge could you put other sites out of business because you offer interactive capability here? >> we're not, look, face boo
4:25 pm
book is huge as you said. we're not at all competitive with facebook. we view ourselves complimentary. we build on top of the facebook -- liz: they are doing the wave which we love. tell them to do the wave again. that is hysterical. now they're raising the roof. really as a demonstration here, what do you need now? do you need more money? need more seed money. >> eventually we'll be raising more capital. right now we're well-funded and we're, we're real excited about just product development. introducing new features, new functionalities, capabilities. talked about the mobile broadcast capability. we're heads down working on all that stuff. liz: my coanchor david asman is a jets fan. if you get jets owner woody johnson although david talks to him all the time i think that would be good. >> cool. we'll work with the jets. we'll try to get them involved. liz: and the browns too, jeff, thank you so much. >> thank you very much for having me. liz: watching developments like spreecast and jeff fluhr, a
4:26 pm

matter from financial perspective. 85% of apple gross products are derived from the iphone and it pad. those two product families are large enough to drive apple going forward for at least next five years. david: large enough, by the way, brian, we should tell our viewers you were a big believer in the stock. you have a $600 price target on it. how long do you think it will take apple's stock to get back up to the $600 level? >> i don't think it will take that long at all. if we get tomorrow the china mobile partnership announced with apple i think that could drive up our unit assumptions for iphones next year by 20% alone. we'll s year-over-year earnings reacceleration and growth rye now. right now most analysts are expecting a decline. i think it will come back. we still have a strong buy rating and $600 target. david: mark, the problem is market share. is there enough worldwide market share for apple with all of the competition? we've seen, some people say we've only seen beginning of

that server? they brought in frank frankovsky. he is that man. he is server genius over at facebook. two years ago we met frank. he came on "three days in the valley." we thought, let's follow up to see how the server business is happening. what was significant back then, facebook could have farmed out that business. instead they brought you and your team on board and said build it. >> yep. since then we actually engaged the rest of the industry to help us build it as well through the open compute project which we talked about two years ago when we just getting started. we were like, hey, if we open source the all the hardware development we've done. we looked what was happening in software and how that is moving forward. liz: two heads are better than one theory. >> yeah. >> bought in industry, intels, amds of the world but you also brought in the hobby its correct? >> yes. that's been a lot of fun. liz: these are the little guys. >> yes. liz: sometimes they have just as food ideas, right? >> it has been awesome. we have 60 official members,
